The first post-lockdown event took place last month with the popular band, The Unravelling Wilburys.

The next show set to light up Melksham’s stage is ‘ELO Beatles Beyond present The Lynne & McCartney Story’ – a night of the greatest hits of ELO, Paul McCartney, Wings and The Beatles, which will be held on Saturday 18th September.

Fronted by top Jeff Lynne and Paul McCartney lookalikes/soundalikes, the show will tell the story behind some of the greatest hits of all time, and how the careers of these two song-writing legends have crossed over the years.

On Saturday 16th October, the Female of the Species, a collaboration of West Country singers and musicians will take to the stage. The ‘famous five’ girls are back together for another evening of soul, rock and pop all for charity.

Everything Changes – on Friday 22nd October – will provide an opportunity to immerse yourself in the Take That and Robbie Williams spectacular and sing, dance and party all night long.

Completing the October line-up on Wednesday 29th is Through the Decades with Roy and Buddy, a two-hour rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza celebrating the songs and musical bond of Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, as portrayed by Darren Paige and Marc Robinson.
